Like really liked a girl, but not exactly attracted to her. More like you liked or loved her like a father or something. You love and want to protect her, but you aren't attracted to her?
Let me elaborate: My friend, I'll call him Genji, really attractive, nice, and sweet, we were really good friends. Anyway he would always be sweet and tender and kind and thoughtful with me all the time, and for a while I thought that he liked me.
But after facing a guy who was harassing me, it turned out that he loved me as a daughter. Like he literally said "Leave my baby girl alone". So I was a little disappointed, but then I was a little flattered Because I was getting a lot of, even though it was weird, fatherly love. But is that normal? He keeps calling me "adorable" and "cute" and he hugs me from behind, and is very protective.
I'm actually worried that if he winds up dating somebody and he acts that way with me, I might have to deal with some unwanted confrontation.
Guys what do you think? Have you ever felt that way toward a girl? Girls too? Have you ever felt that way toward a guy?

Yes. I have made a number of female friends that I don't find physically attractive, but for one reason or another have looked to me as a male figure in their life. These friends generally don't have a good relationship with their father or boyfriends. I feel that my job is try and give them the unvarnished look into a male mind, including telling them when I think they are about to make a serious mistake.0
